Observers of the country talk about a quick Islamization. Additionally, according to the government, Malay ethnicity is seen as being Muslim. The highest pressure is put on Christian converts from Islam. They not only face the risk of being divorced, losing their children's custody rights and inheritance rights, but families will take every means to bring the convert back to the "right" faith. This may start with isolation and pressure to recant the Christian faith, but often will end in a re-education center. It is almost impossible for a Malay Muslim to convert to Christianity.
